Here’s a view of what we’re working with.  Hopefully we’ll pick up a few more things (e.g. spatula(s), whisk, braise/stock pot)  but for the moment we’ve got what we’ve got.

As you can see, we’ve got terribly little counter space, just enough for an 8*8 or so cutting board and an espresso machine (courtesy of the wonderful Marilyn Greif).  We do regular coffee french-press style because it’s small, we can put it away, and let’s face it, it’s just better.

Our 4-Burner Hookup

So one good thing about the kitchen is that the burners are pretty legit.  Not the flamethrowers that scalded my crab in a few seconds at Locanda Verde, but there are a couple larger, couple smaller burners here, so controlling temperature is something of a possibility.  4 burners, 3 cooking contraptions (though I also have a sizzle platter that found its way home with me from The Dressing Room).

One more, complete with tiny fridge.

The fridge, while a huge pain, actually helps to ensure that whatever we’re using is fresh, because we just don’t have room to  buy a bunch of stuff and let it sit.  So far I’ve shopped for groceries every day, and found a bunch of great places in the process.

And the part that makes it all worth it...

One response to “Equipped

  1. Glad you guys are doing this. I was just wondering and going to put it out on the list serv if anybody had any good, easy recipes. I hate to cook and have been avoiding it, which hasn’t worked out well in my favor.

    I look forward to trying something from here soon
